Pros: getting to work in a place with a good environment.
Cons: not having enough time for a break. wanting to make sure that everything is done.
I open the school building in the morning, clean the offices and bathrooms before the students arrive. Once the students arrive it's time for breakfast. Keeping the floor clean of food and spills, and taking out the trash. This is a fast pace of work but yet very challenging.
I have learned to stay on top of my work, and not let my work get on top of me. Working smarter and not harder is the key. I like to plan things out before an event happens.
The staff members are very helpful in the cafeteria with the students. They don't mind lending a hand, when I'm off doing other things to keep the building safe. They are team players and we work very well together.
The hardest part about my job is working in the summer time. There is less manpower and a lot of heavy lifting and moving. If there were more than two people working the job could be finished a lot faster. Stripping and waxing floors while very hot in the building.
The most rewarding and enjoyable part of my job, is seeing the students return in September. The smiles and hugs that I receive from my children makes it all worth while. Meeting the new students and letting them know, that I will be there for them. They are our future leaders.
